Showga Presents: Fire Flow w/ Musical Guest SAKI & the Factor (Japan)

  • Starline Social Club 2236 Martin Luther King Junior Way Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

We are pleased to announce Japanese duo SAKI & the factor as our musical guests for this SHOWGA. 

Since its foundation in September of 2013, SAKi & the factor has been prolific: releasing three albums, providing sound tracks for promotional videos and DVDs, playing live throughout Japan in venues of all sizes, and performing at music festivals such as the world-famous FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL. The music of SAKi & the factor reminds us of the sun and the moon. It can be passionate and powerful, or soothing and tender. Their music is infused with a wide range of styles such as rock, reggae, R&B, pop, electronic, and experimental. SAKi’s angelic yet soulful voice is accompanied by a wide variety of sounds from Jody Tenku who masterfully utilizes acoustic and electric guitars with multiple effectors and looper. Together, they invoke the listener’s imagination with sonic universe that depicts the world’s beauty while occasionally shedding light on humanity’s cruelty and sadness.

This SHOWGA will be a "fire flow." We'll work with heat. We'll gently build heat, we'll physically and energetically cleanse, we'll practice moving and breathing though the fire, and trusting in it's impermanence.
